block faq while editing

Post by Toni » Tue Sep 13, 2016 11:17 am


i wonder that i cannot find anything about overwriting someones content when editing and saving the same faq while i'm editing it too and save it afterwards.
Even if both the users set a new revision it's not possible to open the changes the other user has done and saved just before mine was saved.
On a newly created and edited test faq I noticed two times revision 1.2. e.g. but only one of these two revisions is restorable.

Besides the issue with the revisions i prefer to lock a faq entry so that other users get a notice thats it's locked and cannot edit it at the same time.
Am i missing something or is this the described the default behaviour?

you're right, we do not have any locking mechanism. Nobody asked for that until now. But it's a reasonaböe feature. Please add your feature request here:
